Cousins was officially diagnosed with a torn left quadriceps tendon after undergoing an MRI on Tuesday and is likely out for the rest of the season, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

This is an unfortunate turn of events for Cousins, who was just coming into his own with the Warriors and likely would have been in line for a big payday in free agency following the team's postseason run. With Cousins' MRI revealing the news the Warriors feared, the big man's season is expected to come to a premature end for the second year in a row. On a more fortunate note, Cousins isn't expected to require surgery, though the Warriors will wait and see how he's feeling after two weeks of rehab before determining whether a potential return during the NBA Finals is even realistic. Golden State will now have to lean more heavily on both Andrew Bogut and Kevon Looney to cover minutes at center.
